Our CBD Powder
The backbone of all our products is a hemp-derived, broad-spectrum, water-soluble CBD powder. This unique extract formulation
has many benefits over traditional oil-based extracts. Here’s a breakdown to further explain this CBD.
Our CBD powder is derived from legally grown hemp, which means that the plants it was extracted from contained 0.3%THC or less. This is very important because the source of CBD extract is directly correlated to the legality of the product.
Our CBD powder is a broad-spectrum extract, which means that it contains many of the other phytoconstituents naturally present in hemp extracts, such as terpenes, flavonoids, and polyphenols. The opposite of a ‘full-spectrum’ extract is called an ‘isolate’ which, as it sounds, has isolated the CBD molecule and refined it to ~99.9% purity. Full-spectrum extracts are superior to isolate extracts because of a phenomenon known as The Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect states that when the various constituents of the extract stay together, they have a synergistic relationship that amplifies the positive effect compared to each component separated from one another.
Normally, oil-based CBD extract has very poor absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. That means if you take CBD in oil form and swallow it into your stomach you’ll only be absorbing 20% or less of the expected dose. We convert our CBD oil to a water-soluble powder, which vastly improves absorption in the stomach. When consuming any of our UnCanny products, you’re absorbing roughly 90-100% of the expected dose! Going beyond increased bioavailability, having a water-soluble powder allows us to make more innovative products that go beyond the limited options of oil-based products.

WE USE HEMP PLASTIC AND HEMP FIBER in our packaging
We belive it's important to practice what you preach, and we certainly like to preach about how amazing the hemp plant is. That's why we're commited to using it wherever we possibly can.
Our Barista Blend jars each include a custom 3D printed hemp plastic scooper. We partnered with a local 3D printing company to source the hemp plastic filament and come up with a design that perfectly fit into both size jars.
We use hemp fiber in the form of paper and cardstock for our maketing materials and business cards.
Hemp is an amazing plant that has been with us humans for thousands of years. We want to help return it to its rightful place as an ecological-multi-product force to me reckoned with.
Nonprofit Partner: The Regenerative Community Land Trust
We donate a portion of our profits to the Regenerative Community Land Trust (RegenCLT), a nonprofit committed to reclaiming and protecting the commons by supporting the development of resilient place-based communities and a culture of regeneration.
To achieve this, RegenCLT acquires land that is held perpetually by a distributed network of community land trusts and works collaboratively with other organizations to educate, research, and implement systemic solutions to the connected social, economic, and environmental crises of our time.
We believe that the proper use and stewardship of land is integral to getting humanity on a positive trajectory and transitioning away from the negative feedback loop of endless growth, extraction and destruction. It is for those reasons we are proud to support the work of RegenCLT as they facilitate meaningful change to happen in real communities on the ground.
Every dollar you spend with us supports your own health, small business, resilient communities and the emergence of a regenerative culture. If you want to support the work of the Regenerative Community Land Trust directly, you can visit them at RegenCLT.org to learn more, get involved, and make a donation.
